About this event



If you would like to support the LLS mission through The Leukemia Cup, you can still donate through June 30th online, here, and select a sailor to support!

The sailing community has raised more than $250,000 so far, and that total continues to rise! All funds benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) mission. Your support is the key to helping LLS achieve its mission of creating a world without blood cancers.
